WHAT IS A DERMATOLOGIST?

A board-certified dermatologist in the Philippines is a doctor who completed 3 years of specialty training in one of the 11 institutions accredited by the PDS and passed the examination administered by the Philippine Board of Dermatology.
There are many substandard programs claiming that they can offer training in Dermatology. Some courses run for a week, 3 months or a year. The format of these trainings are not well structured. Would you trust yourselves in the hands of these untrained doctors?

For effective and safe medical, surgical and cosmetic treatments for your skin, hair and nails,

CONSULT A PDS DERMATOLOGIST, THE DermAuthority.

Established in 1952, the PDS is an organization of dermatologists or doctors who are experts in the field of medicine dedicated to the skin, hair and nails.
